PPL Corporation, its employees and its retirees joined forces to raise $4 million during the company’s annual United Way campaign.
The funds will support ongoing efforts throughout central and eastern Pennsylvania to help children learn, grow and succeed; to create more opportunities for those less fortunate; to improve the quality of life for seniors; to provide emergency services to victims of violence and natural disasters; and to battle hunger in our communities.
The company’s annual United Way campaign included $2 million in contributions from employees and retirees.
“Our employee and retiree contributions are an expression of their caring spirit and represent an investment in the future of our neighborhoods,” said William H. Spence, PPL chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Together we are making our communities stronger and more vibrant.”
In addition to employee and retiree contributions to this year’s campaign in Pennsylvania, the PPL Foundation provided $2 million in a dollar-for-dollar match of all employee and retiree giving to the United Way.
Since 2009, the company’s United Way campaigns have raised more than $24 million through employee and retiree donations, event fundraisers and support from the PPL Foundation.
